I am trying to run an offline defrag of my Exchange 2000 priv1.edb and have gathered all of the info on the eseutil.exe utility.  But any command that I run with that comes back with the message.

"eseutil.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file"

This is in the command prompt of course.

Is their something I have to install to be able to use this utility?  The support doc I have on it kba 192185 does not mention that.

Have you tried
 Start eseutil.exe
from the command prompt?

Where did you save it?  Is it in %systemroot%\system32?
If not, copy it there and try again...

Alternatively, you can navigate to the folder that eseutil.exe is loaded in.  This folder should also contain ese.dll, jcb.dll, exosal.dll and exchmem.dll

The eseutil.exe is located in C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin.  The exosal.dll is missing?  

Also due to space constraints the priv1.edb is forwarded to the D: drive.  Could this be my problem when running this utility?

It's not in the \Exchsrvr\bin folder?

You might try copying them to the D: drive then...

Thanks I got it to work.  I was actually starting off in the wrong directory.  Silly.  But once I got in right directory problem solved.  Thanks for your help.

A B because by the scale it says if you pointed me in the right direction it is a B.  You didn't actually solve anything did you?  In fact your suggestion wasn't what I did.  I do appreciate your help though and gave you the points.
